    1. 2.5-3 StarsAnd that was why this whole thing was so scary. I knew he'd bring me nothing but trouble, and yet I still wanted him with every single breath I took.I struggled with my rating for this book for several weeks. I adore this author and everything she writes. I was a huge fan of her books under the Diane Alberts pen name, so when I saw she has a new series coming out with Berkley, I was beyond excited. Even more so when I saw this ridiculously hot cover. I was looking forward to a gritty [...]


    2. I really enjoyed this a lot! However I felt the character went through a lot of back and forth problems with eachother. It was as if they were going in circles of their feelings and while most of the time this can be endearing, in this book it just got a little tiring because I felt they kept having the same conversation in a different format multiple times. I did love Lucas and the story of him being in a gang was really interesting as I've never read a book like this before! I also liked the s [...]


    3. Five Reasons to grab Dare to RunI love the Boston setting and McLaughlin takes us into the underbelly of the city and into the lives of its locals. The criminal gangs run deep in this story and their hands reach into the pockets of local law enforcement and its politicians. Lucas’s membership and ranking within the gang and its mentality added an edge to this romance. I favor romances where we get both perspectives and Dare To Run had alternating chapters between Lucas and Heidi.Lucas Donahue [...]


    4. 4.5 stars. HOLY. CRAP. This book was amazing. And the twist at the climax? I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING! What a lovely ending, in spite of that twist but WOAH. I cannot WAIT to read Chris's book!***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog***Dare To Run by Jen McLaughlinBook One of The Sons of Steel Row seriesPublisher: SignetPublication Date: February 2, 2016Rating: 4 starsSource: eARC from NetGalley***Warning: this is an adult book, and for the eyes of mature readers***Summary (from ):The New Yor [...]


    5. Is it shallow to admit that I picked up this book without even reading the summary solely because of that cover? Thankfully, it turned out to be a pretty good decision because for me, the interior was as good as the exterior!I'm not usually one to seek out books with characters that you wouldn't normally want to associate with in real life, like illegal arms dealers and criminals. So, you can imagine my surprise when I ended up really enjoying Lucas' character in Dare to Run. He was very much ro [...]


    6. This is a seriously hot cover, but somehow doesn't seem to represent our H, Lucas. Ms. McLaughlin is a very good writer and is a good story teller - the words flow, etc. The characters (except our heroine, Heidi) and the Sons of Steel Row gang are an interesting and intriguing group. They are pretty well fleshed out and the setting in the slums of Boston fits a gritty story and these gang characters.There were two good scenes in the book - the first scene and the last scene before the epilogue. [...]


    7. I have had this book on my shelf for far too long and, since the third book is coming out soon, I wanted to finally give this book a chance. With dangerous men falling hard for a woman he'll do anything to protect, I couldn't wait to dive in. After spending some time in jail without giving up any information on Steel Row, Lucas Donahue is back working for the gang and finding himself climbing up in rank. While he'd love nothing more than to go straight and leave, no one leaves Steel Row voluntar [...]


    8. "This is a mistake, but, sweetheart, I'll make sure that I'm the best mistake you've ever made," Dare to Run is my first read from author Jen McLaughlin. I've had tons of recommendations to read one of her books and when this arrived from the publisher I was excited to dive in. I mean look at the HOT COVER! What romance reader wouldn't want to start this on the look of the cover alone? It started a bit slow and I was worried that I would lose interest, but the chemistry and the great banter betw [...]


    9. My Thoughts:Dare to Run is the first book in the all new, The Sons of Steel Row Series. I was attracted to the cover, book blurb, and the fact that Jen McLaughlin was the author. I have read a few of her books, and really enjoyed them. Dare to Run was a story filled to the brim with suspense, danger, conspiracy, betrayal, and passion. It was a great read, and I am looking forward to continuing this series.Lucus Donahue has grown up in the gang lifestyle. He has been a part of the Sons of Steel R [...]


    10. Holy freaking #Covergasm! That is one gorgeous book! Totally squeed and scared the birds when I opened the mail. Can't wait to dive in :DReviewing for herding cats & burning soup.


    11. ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review“For the first time in my life, I wanted to help someone without any thought to the cost. I wanted to help her.”DARE TO RUN is the first book of Jen McLaughlin's new series, Sons of Steel Row. Unlike Jen's previous books, Dare to Run is a thrilling and gritty tale that follows an anti-hero in Lucas Donahue. Lucas Donahue is ruthless, calculating, merciless, and cunning. A criminal. A killer. A gangster. He is the guy that you wouldn't wa [...]


    12. Lucas is a rising member of the Sons of Steel Row. However, he doesn't want to be. He was just released from prison where he almost lost his life and he has no desire to go back to jail. However, once you are in the Sons, the only way out is death. So, he sticks the course. That is, until he sees Heidi being attacked by another gang. You see, Heidi is the bar owner from across the street from his place. He frequents her establishment a lot and has found her to be fascinating. She's got the same [...]


    13. Danke an NetGalley und LYX für das Bereitstellen eines Rezensionsexemplares.Inhalt:Nach zwei Jahren im Gefängnis hat Lucas Donahue nur ein Ziel: eine Führungsposition bei den Sons of Steel Row. Doch zwei Dinge stehen ihm dabei im Weg: sein eigener Bruder, der ihn umbringen will, um selbst an die Macht zu kommen, und die Barkeeperin Heidi Greene, die er vor einer Vergewaltigung durch eine rivalisierende Gang rettet und unter seinen Schutz stellt. Nun muss Lucas nicht nur gegen sein eigen Fleis [...]


    14. “Run with me. If you run with me… I’ll go.”Lucas Donahue and Heidi Greene call South Boston their home. Warts and all, they are comfortable here even if it is not the easiest life. Lucas was used to working the streets as a high ranking gang member, even if dealing guns was easier than dealing with people, especially women. Heidi knew firsthand what those streets were like but was satisfied working the pub she called her own now, her home. When the aftermath of a violent attack brings th [...]


    15. Lucas ist gerade erst aus dem Gefängnis gekommen und schon muss er sich seinen nächsten Herausforderungen stellen. Nicht nur, dass sein eigener Bruder versucht ihn umzubringen, er begeht auch einen Fehler, denn er ist einmal nicht egoistisch und rettet die Bardame Heidi, bevor sie vergewaltigt wird.Doch seine heroische Tat hat gravierende Folgen, denn nun steht Heidi unter seinem Schutz, ob sie will oder nicht. Und Heidi will das alles überhaupt nicht, denn sie ist eine eigenständige, toughe [...]


    16. Dare to Run is the first in a new, gritty series by Jen McLaughlin about the mean streets of Boston and the gangs who run them. Lucas Donahue is a bad boy. No really - he's a bad. Boy. After working his way up the ranks of Boston's Sons of Steel Row gang, he ended up in jail for two years. Now he's back to his old ways - running guns and meting out violence when the need calls for it. Like when he has to save the bacon of the pretty lady who runs his favorite bar.Independent and fierce Heidi Gre [...]


    17. I haven't read a gritty, tempestuous bad boy romance in some time so I was all sorts of eager when I saw the release of this new series by an author I hadn't encountered before. I knew going in that this wouldn't be easy and boy-howdy was I right. Talk about a tough spot to be in and that was nothing to what came at the end. Jen McLaughlin can sure write THE big money scene of all climaxes. Whew! If this were a roller-coaster, I would want to get back in line and go again- and I get to because i [...]


    18. Spotlight, Review & Giveaway: Dare to Run (The Sons of Steel Row #1) by Jen McLaughlin wp/p3d0RZ-3OsPublication Date: February 2, 2016Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ CoriRated 4.5 StarsWow! Just wow! I'm hooked now! I'll admit I chose to read this book based on the cover alone. It's that hot. Jen MacLaughlin delivered an incredible story that lived up to the cover. I love the  bad boy/ villain heroes and Lucas was just that. I fell in love with him while the heroine was falling for him. [...]


    19. Dare to Run felt dark, gritty, and so real to me.  I flipped through its pages fast and could not make myself put the book down for a second.  I seriously lost hours engrossed in this suspenseful romance between a self-confessed bad guy and a girl who grew up on the streets and was given a chance on a good life.Bad buy Lucas Donahue is not someone you want to mess with.  Having evaded a murder attempt while serving time in jail, he's out and back to work in the gang he's been in since he was [...]


    20. 2.5/5 - ok read- a bit predictable at the end. I was frustrated with the leads, they kept assuming things and didn't come across as very mature characters in certain situations. The story pacing was slow, but my interest in the world was peaked enough that I would give book 2 a go, it'll just be on a much shorter leash.


    21. I got about a third into this book before I gave up on it. I'm all for a strong heroine but I'm not a fan of the strong heroines who think they know best and smart off to the very people who tried to rape and kill her. I'm not buying that shit one bit so I'm throwing the towel in on this one.DNF.


    22. Rating: 4 Stars - Loved ItThoughts: I had so much fun reading Lucas and Heidi as a couple. They are forced in a fake relationship after he rescues her from an attack from a rival gang. The banter was fun between them. The sexual tension was great. They had the best chemistry that Lucas sees but Heidi does not want to admit it. This leads to some push and pull with the them. Heidi wants to sleep with him and Lucas will not until she admits they have good chemistry. I enjoyed their characters as i [...]


    23. That, right there? It was why I’d fallen in love with him. He was this hardened, jaded soul, but with me…well, he wasn’t. And it was only with me, so that meant something. He made me feel as if I was the only person on the the earth that mattered to him. The only one he showed this soft, sweet, lovable side to. It made what we had, however temporary it might be, all the more special.”What an exciting, thrilling new read from Jen McLaughlin. I have to tell you, I have been a fan of her bo [...]


    24. This review was originally posted on Cocktails and BooksDare To Run is the first book in this new series, Sons of Steel Row by Jen McLaughlin. This book sucked me right in. I love Boston and it provides a nice backdrop to this storyline. The book begins with Lucas getting out of prison and returning to his gang: The Sons of Steel Row. He seems closed off from everyone and leads a lonely existence. He has a brother who is in the gang and a best friend Chris but he doesn't seem to be close to anyo [...]


    25. First: The cover is not correct. Lucas has no tattoos visible below the t-shirt arms…thus the great joy for both Heidi and me was discovering a chest full of tats and a nipple ring! Like unwrapping an awesome present that only gets better and better. Not that I am going to complain too much about the guy on the cover, but Lucas’ appeal was that he actually looked “almost normal” if it weren’t for the air of badass dangerous MF that rolled off of him in waves. Second: I love men…men o [...]


    26. Recently released from a two-year stint in prison, Lucas Donahue, a ranking member of the Sons of Steel Row gang, was attacked and nearly killed just before he got out. Now he’s back in Boston trying to determine if the attack was personal or business. Unfortunately, it looks like the hit came from within the Son of Steel Row gang, and his own baby brother, Scotty, is the top suspect.Heidi Greene lives and works in Steel Row, Boston. After living through a rough childhood, Frankie, a father-fi [...]

    28. What do you get when you take an anti-hero who is as dangerous as he is delicious, toss in a tough-as-nails heroine, some seriously bad dudes, and a major plot twist? A manicure. That's what you get because you've chewed all your nails off wondering how in the CUPCAKE this could possible end well?! So thanks for that, Jen McLaughlin. But seriously. You also get a great start to a new series. Dare To Run is how you do a Boston Mafia-esque story! Read it.
